Hospira Expands VisIV(TM) Portfolio to Offer Complete Range of Environmentally Friendly I.V. Containers
Date:12/4/2009

ume flexible I.V. container to feature a full line of sizes without an overwrap, and the product also offers patient and caregiver safety benefits, such as sterile, virtually impenetrable medication additive port tubes and a flanged port design to help protect against needlesticks. The containers also provide a greater protective area for clinicians as they add medications to the container. The VisIV product line also offers other safety features, such as ergonomic pull rings to prevent touch contamination and superior barcode reading.

"Using VisIV containers in Health Alliance hospitals is a key element of our waste reduction strategy and superior patient care," said Shelly Wiest, director of clinical pharmacy programs for Health Alliance, a network of five hospitals in greater Cincinnati. "All of the VisIV container's innovative features were designed to help improve the safety and efficiency of intravenous medication delivery, so we know we are doing the best for our patients as well as for the environment when we use VisIV."

Hospira introduced the VisIV container in 2006 as a greener alternative to traditional I.V. bags. Approximately 1,400 of the 5,708 hospitals in the United States, or nearly 25 percent, use VisIV for some or most of their I.V. needs, resulting in the elimination of more than 1.4 million pounds of plastic waste since launch.(iv) Should the entire industry follow Hospira's lead and eliminate overwrap from all flexible I.V. containers, more than 20 million pounds of plastic could be eliminated from the U.S. hospital waste stream each year.(v)
